Stanley's lost beach-1990s

This beach at Stanley disappeared under the present promenade.

The abandoned small sailing Junk was probably Vietnamese. Presumably used by boat refugees.                           It closely resembled those I saw in Hai Phong harbour and on the Red River Delta in the 1980s.

When this photo was taken Sailing Junks had disappeared from Hong Kong’s waters
